NBC is reporting that President Trump made good on his May promise and notified the United Nations today that America would be withdrawing from the World Health Organization.
This is the organization that failed to sound the alarm about the contagious virus spreading through China. They actively helped cover it up for China. Why would America want to be apart of this organization anymore? This move makes complete sense for the security of our country.
The report states:
“That notice of withdrawal was submitted to the U.N. secretary-general. Congress was also notified Tuesday of the United States’ official withdrawal from the international health agency, Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., said in tweet.
“Congress received notification that POTUS officially withdrew the U.S. from the @WHO in the midst of a pandemic,” Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, wrote. “To call Trump’s response to COVID chaotic & incoherent doesn’t do it justice. This won’t protect American lives or interests — it leaves Americans sick & America alone.”
The WHO did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC News.”
For anyone paying attention, this seems like an “about time” situation for America and the WHO. We have watched them play favorites and cover-up games for the Chinese as thousands of Americans die for a disease that never should have left China. They allowed China to falsify information about the disease with zero punishment.
Americans deserve better than the WHO, and Trump is making sure we get it. I am sure that Trump is using this as a way to break down and rebuild the WHO to fit America’s needs better. I am more than happy with Trump’s decision.
You know who isn’t happy, China sympathizers on the left. They didn’t waste a second before they started tweeting how this decision is bad for America.
I will gladly not send my taxes to and organization that supports China. Enjoy these out of touch liberal as they cry to heavens for their fallen comrade.
Other than pure politics, there’s no credible justification for Trump’s cynical decision to formally withdraw the U.S. from WHO. It will weaken our ability to defeat the ongoing pandemic, endanger the health of Americans and people everywhere, and further erode U.S. leadership.

This decision is irresponsible, reckless, and utterly incomprehensible. Withdrawing from the @WHO in the midst of the greatest public health crisis of our lifetime is a self-destructive move. More Americans will be hurt by this careless choice. https://t.co/OeSoLikR4f

They are all so delusional. This will be another example of Trump taking one on the chin to make sure America stays the greatest country in the world.
